Compton rapper The Game has brought together quite a few big names in the music industry to make a song inspired by the fatal shooting of teenager Mike Brown that took place in Ferguson, MO. Game sat down with Rolling Stone Magazine expressing he wanted to bring awareness to the situation because it hit close to home. Police brutality is going on everyday in every country and people don’t realize it until it is publicized on the news. In some cases, they never get attention.
In the interview Game says:
“The issues in Ferguson really hit home for me, and I feel compelled to use my musical platform to address this. I am a black man with kids of my own that I love more than anything, and I cannot fathom a horrific tragedy like Michael Brown’s happening to them. This possibility has shaken me to my core. That is why this song must be made and why it was so easy for so many of my friends to come together and unite against the injustice.”
On how he got everyone to collaborate
“I managed to get everyone on board fairly easy, simply because we have the hearts. We care and are inclined to take a positive approach to resolving an issue that has existed since the beginning of mankind and that is racism and hatred towards one another as human beings.”
Listen to the song below
All proceeds from the iTunes sales of the song will go to the Justice for Mike Brown GoFundMe account.
